sh1984: Hendersons would have been better off holding, just stalled the share price and now that the share price will rebound and they will end up with fewer shares to benefit from the bounce.
l0ngshanks: This company manufactures outside the UK, does most of its business outside the UK, does most of its R&D in the UK and has most of its Admin costs in the UK and reports in Euros. Putting all these together, the UK Referendum and negative Balance of Trade impacts on exchange rates should not adversely affect Sepura and may be marginally beneficial. The trading update on the 22nd will hopefully allay short-term fears and result in some improvement in the share price. However, there can't be any more bad news, if the share price is to ever recover and there must be some demonstrable progress and convincing management/board action before the share price rebounds. Longer term, Sepura has to explain how it will continue to grow when the TETRA market starts to decline, and this is probably imminent, if it hasn't already started. I hope this helps genuine investors and followers of Sepura.
johns6: Also agree. This company will grow from strength to strength. My average is still more than double that of the current price but I feel confident. I too have spoken to the finance team and it really is business as usual. Unfortunately for us private investors we are the victim of higher forces keeping the share price here but patience will pay off.
shroder: There could be some Brexit concerns lingering over the share price, perhaps this is why management haven't really come forward with firm reassurance. Tesco having probs with Unilever this morning.
investment dave: Sepura’s shares are up after the company announced a major new contract win. Sepura has been selected by a large continental European public safety organisation to provide 19,000 SC20 series hand-portable radios. The contract builds on Sepura’s strength in the public safety market and shows that its current strategy is improving the company’s overall performance. Sepura’s outlook is rather mixed. Although its profitability is due to fall significantly in the current year, next year is expected to represent a major step forward for the business. Sepura is forecast to increase its pre-tax profit from £0.4m in the current year to £11.6m in the next financial year. This step change in profitability has the potential to boost investor sentiment in Sepura and could cause its share price to rise. Furthermore, Sepura offers excellent value for money. It trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 6.1. This shows that even if its bottom line performance is lower than that currently anticipated by the market, Sepura has a sufficiently wide margin of safety to merit investment for the long term. In terms of dividends, Sepura isn’t expected to make any shareholder payouts in either the current year or next year. However, for growth investors Sepura has real appeal and alongside Swallowfield, the gains made thus far today could continue over the coming months and years.
sh1984: The market is convinced as the share price opened up around 18.5p, but it has since been worked down by shorters looking for a favourable exit point, it will be up again when they exit over the next few weeks... long term hold for me.
scapital: Last time they only put out a statement after the share price moved a lot:Further to the recent share price movement, Sepura confirms that it had received a very preliminary approach from a third party which has since confirmed that it does not intend to submit any proposal.
tjbird: International companies are preparing to cash in on Brexit with a sustained targeting of Cambridge UK technology businesses, investment sources close to the action have told Business Weekly. Opportunist strikes are increasingly likely over the next few months, principally from US and Asia sources who have already signalled their intentions to Cambridge business brokers – and in some cases via direct contact with companies themselves. SoftBank’s controversial, high profile $31 billion bid for ARM looks like being just the start. Sepura, the communications technology business, now reveals that it has been targeted. Two of the city’s brightest young tech companies – one in software and one in the broader communications tech arena – have also confirmed approaches to Business Weekly. One has rejected a bid offer from a potential US acquirer. The other is likely to go in a matter of months if the price is right. Sepura has had a rough ride since reporting short-term liquidity issues and its share price crashed from £1.97p at the start of April to the low-50s. Its stock has risen significantly in the last week, prompting Sepura to concede that it had received a “very preliminary approach from a third party which had since confirmed that it does not intend to submit a formal offer.” The company remains a prime target having recently raised £65m and opened up burgeoning opportunities in North and Latin America with the acquisition of Teltronic. Given its share price and market cap of £199.68m allied to a broadening suite of technologies, Sepura is an attractive target.
shroder: Copy of email sent to Peter Connor for reference only, please dyor. ___________________________________________________________________________ Dear Peter, Thanks for taking the time last week to run through recent press releases, very helpful. My concern is not everyone has either inclination, and or confidence to do this. Indeed, some private investors will never contact companies directly believing this is preserve of institutions. In light of the dramatic drop in share price, could I therefore ask the board/nomad to consider issuing further clarification, particularly around breach of bank covenants which the market may perceive as being directly related to cash flow. “The Group has sufficient liquidity for its forecast needs. The revised revenue expectations may require Sepura to discuss with its lenders a possible waiver of certain of its covenants from March 2017.” In my opinion, the RNS wording lends itself to this assumption given that ‘covenantsR17; follow directly on from ‘sufficient liquidly’. My suggestion here would be to highlight those convents potentially impacted by the shortfall such as EBITA metric (as discussed) , again it may help to point out these are some way off and not immediate. Please note, I have posted a copy of this communication online to assist other investors. Kind regards,
carcosa: There may well be significant volatility in the share price over the coming days. Some people will make lots of money. However, for those investors who rely on business fundamentals the case for Sepura must surely be 'uninvestable' until at such time detailed revenue guidance/recovery actions/market are given and clarity on potential dilution arising from future fund raising or some other corporate action is made. For a company to have grossly missed revenue forecasts, management integrity does not exist for me.
